We’re into July

Wow…time flies around here. I’ll have more pics shortly, and everything is coming along just swimmingly!The floor is now complete throughout both units. It looks fantabulous if I may say so myself.This week, we’re building new furniture for the office/kitchen, and running loads back and forth from the storage unit. It won’t be an overly exciting blog week unless we can get a video of Cynthia and I attempting to build Idomo furniture…..I’m guessing Idomo furniture will be just as hellish to build as Ikea furniture is 🙂 that’s it for now…wait for more pics at some point this week. …

Lots of pictures!

Wow! What a difference. We’re all very, very excited. The painting has been completed on the new side, we’ve got a nice new french door to the classroom. The door still needs to be stained.Jan our wonderful contractor, has just taken out the wall in front that separated the two units. Next week, another wall will be removed, and the new floor will be installed in our original unit.

smooth sailing so far

We’ve got a short term timeline this week. Today/tomorrow they are plastering, putting in doors, removing shelving from the walls. Wednesday/Thursday painting, and on Friday the new floor is going in. Nice, beautiful maple laminate floors…..yay….the new space is going to sparkle! -jen

Late update!

I haven’t posted in a while. The kitchen is taking much longer to complete than planned…way longer.We are holding off for a bit on the renovations. We have recently found out that our next door neighbour is moving out!! We are going to be taking over that unit. Our new store/studio is going to be a total of 2500 sq. ft! Whohoo. Jennifer

Whirlwind!

Aaack…ok things are moving fast now! The electrician is almost finished. We have no power at all right now. He has to come back when the landlord is here to connect our new panel to his panel. We’ve picked out the kitchen, and Dan and I are going to purchase it in a few minutes. The handyman/plumber guy is coming tomorrow! (we hope) Pics of the now disaster zone will come tomorrow. jen

Still here!

We’ve had a crazy couple of weeks, and the electrician was pushed back a bit. He was actually supposed to come in yesterday, but we discovered that the job wasn’t a simple as we originally thought (I should have expected that!)He’s now coming on Monday or Tuesday…can’t remember now, with additional panels and such. Also, kitchen shopping this weekend! The classroom is getting a new kitchen/coffee area. Since we’re of course attempting to do this on a modest budget, I’ll be building it myself….now THAT should be interesting! jen

Next Step

We haven’t stopped the process! We were at the Bead Oasis show this past weekend, and our attention was focused on that.Next week, I’m hoping to start building the new kitchen, and we’ll probably have the electrician in next week as well. see you soon! jennifer

Painting is Done!

Step 1 is now complete! This is so exciting, next steps are putting in new lighting, building a small kitchen area, getting in the electrican, and the phone guy. Then all new furniture for the classroom and an admin area. It’s not huge, but is much bigger than it looks in this picture. Here is a pic of the finished paint job, except for the floor. The floor just has a coat of primer. The floor was to be done today, but it needs about a week to completely cure.All told, this part was fairly painless.More in about a week!
